Easter ‘origami bunny’ treat box

Hello! Last year I made some ‘origami bunny’ chocolate bar wrappers and I thought the bunny would look nice on these treat boxes. The design is really minimal and suitable for kids and grown-ups.

The sun has finally started shining in the UK after a long, wet winter. I’m already in the mood for summer and have been working on some geometric icosahedron ice creams! Can’t wait to show you them in a week or so. Until then, happy crafting!

Free Fonts #4

I‘ve just stumbled across Filiz Sahin’s website and found lots of really lovely free fonts to download. They are only available as .eps, .ai and .ps files so you will need Illustrator or Photoshop in order to use them. Hopefully they will be available as .ttf files soon!

My favorite is this hand painted font called Mink Type. You can download here. Thanks Filiz!

♥ Tumblr!

I have finally opened a Tumblr page. It’s a work in progress so not fully up to date yet.

I would love very much for you to ‘follow’ me. Then I can follow you! (I have ’1′ follower at the moment so it’s a bit lonely over there!!). Happy Saturday.

You’re a gem // pop-up card

It’s mothers day in the UK at the end of March and I wanted to come up with a nice idea for a card. I decided to recycle my paper-cut gems from a previous post and made these cool popup cards.

There are six gems to choose from if the diamond doesn’t appeal to you.

You can also make a ‘paper-cut’ version of the round gem. It looks fantastic if you stick some shiny foil inside the card.

The templates are at the foot of the post if you fancy giving this project a go!
